NCAA update

All,

                A quick update on NCAA wrestling:

UVA has two semi finalists for the first time in school history. They will wrestle on ESPN at 7:00 tonight.

125 lbs (first weight class) true freshman #10 Jack Mueller vs #6 Ethan Lizak (Minnesota). Lizak beat Jack earlier this season.

141 lbs (3rd weight class) senior #6 George DiCamillo vs #10 Bryce Meredith (Wyoming). I don't think they ever wrestled before.

Currently in sixth place

Free clinic @ Skyline High School this Sunday (03/19)

Please consider forwarding this to your team.

 

This Sunday, March 19th, Sick Nasty Freestyle Club will be hosting a FREE CLINIC featuring Tim Pierson from 3-5 PM at Skyline High School. The point of this clinic is to assist wrestlers and families with the transition from folkstyle wrestling to freestyle wrestling. You will be provided an overview of the major rule differences between the two styles as well as some of the differences in strategies.

 

The goals of this clinic:

1) Better understand the rules of freestyle

2) Better understand the benefits of freestyle to those who want to improve at folkstyle

3) Better understand the strategies that advanced freestyle wrestlers use to win tough matches
